This comes as Governor Kate Brown announced new coronavirus rules in Oregon’s counties at the lower risk level. The new guidance by the Health Authority would allow for businesses, venues, and faith institutions located in counties in the lower risk category to have areas specifically for vaccinated people.
These areas for vaccinated people would not need to adhere to physical distancing or capacity limits. However, businesses, venues, and faith institutions can still require mask-wearing in vaccinated sections. Oregon officials say the unvaccinated sections must follow all health and safety protocols. People must wear masks and maintain physical distance.
